    Federal Reserve Headquarters

    When the Paul family, Ron Paul and son Rand Paul, blame the Federal Reserve and its cheap money policy during the Bush years for creating the housing bubble and the resulting financial collapse, they are only telling a fraction of truth. The bigger problem was the loophole Phil Gramm wrote into the 2000 Federal Budget that made it possible for banks to lend at ratios that were guaranteed to end in disaster.

    News

    Rand Paul and Ed Whitfield recently tried to kill a vital EPA rule that will save between 13,000 and 34,000 lives a year. Should they be charged with that number of attempted murders?

    News

    Foreclosed

    Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway has stated that he will "not support any settlement of the robo signing mortgage foreclosure case that would give expanded civil or criminal immunity to banks or their executives." Details of the settlement that may be announced as soon as next week are starting to leak. If the leaks are accurate, Mr. Conway and a tiny handful of like minded attorneys general may soon be heroes to the cause of fighting the Wall Street influence.

    News

    Monday morning, on my way to protest John Boehner, Hell suddenly broke loose all around me. I was momentarily surrounded by blaring sirens, arrays of red and blue strobe lights the like of which could have sent every epileptic in the Ohio River Valley into seizures, and a line of long, black, bullet proof SUV's. The guest of honor of our protest, Speaker of the House John Boehner, had arrived.

    News

    Mitch McConnell and his fellow Republicans agrily charge that government does not create jobs. Only the private sector creates jobs. This is ridiculous. Governments provide real and valuable services to people who pay for them with real and valuable dollars. And real and valuable people do the work... until those governments get starved, the workers all get laid off, and the services stop being provided.

    News

    Mitch McConnell's cynical and callous attitude toward the unemployed stems from more than his single-minded focus on bringing down the duly elected president of the United States of America. Those segments of society hardest hit by high unemployment didn't vote for Republicans even before they were unemployed.

    News

    Mitch McConnell talks about the 1.5 million jobs lost since President Obama's inauguration and he shamelessly says the stimulus didn't work. What he doesn't tell you are that more Americans are working than when Obama took office or that without the stimulus, unemployment would be over 11% instead of stubbornly hovering about 9.1%.

    People at Occupy Louisville

    This article is a collection of largely uncut, unedited videos of interviews with people participating in Occupy Louisville. No one person speaks for the people occupying the public square at 6th and Jefferson, but each individual has their reasons for being there. Listen to what they have to say "in their own words".

    News

    Day three of Occupy Louisville began with some 30 citizens waking up on The Belvedere after having spent the night outside to keep the "occupation" continuous. There are no actual demands yet, but the leaderless group has managed to develop a process for self-governance, gotten donations of food, water, and other necessities, and set up a website. In other words... they are well on their way to their goal of creating a protest that, like others in New York, Boston, and nearly every large city in the country, will continue on "until their one demand is met"... whatever that one demand ultimately turns out to be.

    News

    Rand Paul's third largest campaign contributor has paid tens of millions of dollars to settle lawsuits arising from hundreds of pipeline related oil spills and the burning deaths of two children in a butane explosion from a pipeline the company knew was faulty.
